Airtight and secure, the Karmi Tea Canister preserves the freshness of loose-leaf tea through superior design and a meticulously handcrafted process. Core pieces of cherry birch wood are naturally dried to remove moisture, then thinned and hand-carved on a wood-turning lathe. A thin, protective layer of lacquer finishes the piece. Following traditional techniques, every step in this process is then repeated five to ten times, then dried extensively, until after around a year the piece is completed. Its unique abstract form is hand-carved with perfectly spaced, finely engraved rings, forming ridges that flow elegantly around its structure. The highly engineered lid doubles as a measuring cup to hold tea leaves, spices, or coffee beans.
